am a big fan of Evans but if this tweet is true, it'd be a pretty big bummer. I'd have serious concerns about his ability to come in here and be willing to improve his game the way the coaches want.
then they have to get somebody that can knock down a jumper with consistency at the 3, even if its a bench guy that gets a lot of minutes.
If we're still linked to Tyreke after today I'd say Demps is planning/hoping to move Gordon.

Took this from a Kings message board. Don't know how credible it is though. quote:@whatelvirosaid 14 min The New Orleans Pelicans are reportedly making Tyreke Evans a large offer, starting at $11,378,284.
If they sign and trade Evans for Gordon, sign Iggy and copeland with the remaining money so our roster looks like:
Holiday / Vasquez
Evans / Rivers
Iggy / Copeland / Aminu
AD / RA
Lopez / Smiht
I'd be a happy camper honestly. No idea if the numbers work out, but I would like it a lot.
Anyway, I don't think Gordon would be going to the Kings.
My gut would be that we have a separate deal for him to go elsewhere. Gordon on the Kings makes no sense.
T-Wolves? They've got a shit-ton of cap space thanks to AK47 opting out and are chasing Kevin Martin, amongst others, to fill their hole at the 2.
Like McNamara just tweeted, there is no way the Pels simply extend this offer to Evans. The only way they do it is for a sign and trade because if not, we are in a holding pattern until July 13 and can't do anything until we know what Evans will do.
